The Maryland Commission on Criminal Sentencing Policy was created in 1996 (Chapter 563, Acts of 1996). The Commission is to evaluate Maryland sentencing and correctional laws with regard to sentencing guidelines, parole, mandatory supervision, and correctional options. To help determine what resources would be required to implement its recommendations, the Commission will develop a simulation model of the correctional population.
The Commission consists of nineteen members. Its interim report was submitted to the Governor and General Assembly on December 30, 1996. Authorization for the Commission continues until July 1, 1999 (Code 1957, Art. 41, sec. 18-312).
July 10, 1998
